When I had Jack Jack, I wanted a versatile and quality diaper bag. Something that I can use anywhere without it looking like a diaper bag. I bought only two diaper bags. And boy, they were a great investment for me because they offered a lot of features. One of the two is the Baby Sherpa Backpack.
Technically, I have the following requirement for a diaper bag:
- Lots and lots of pockets and compartments
- Ergonomically friendly
- Does not look like a diaper bag.
- Made of high-grade quality materials.
- Easy to clean (and this is a requirement for anything that I buy!)
High standard? Well, only because I don’t like having too much stuff. I just want to use what I have over and over again. If it can’t last 5 years at least, it’s not worth the money.
We used this for our last trip to the beach and it was so helpful (as long as I don’t forget which goes to which pocket). It’s got lots of pockets, pouches and compartments that I could put all of our stuff. This is basically my family’s carry-on luggage on the plane. Laptop, extra clothing for Jack Jack, activities, snacks and drinks are fitted into this bag. The other important stuff (ID’s, money, credit cards, etc.) are placed in a small traveling pouch.
What I love about the bag:
Endless pockets! Honestly, having the worst case of momnesia, I’m just glad I can remember where I put some stuff. It’s got a lot of pockets to put your stuff into that there are times I have to open up each of them to find what I need. But I love these pockets.
Insulated compartments. There’s one on the side and the other is under the bag. The one on the side can be detached if you don’t need it while under the bag there’s a mesh in it where I believe you can put an ice pack to make the compartment cooler.
Fits as carry-on luggage for all airlines. We love traveling.
Bungee X cord on back. It’s not only for aesthetic purposes. You can literally pull it and slip anything you’re holding in it. I use it most of the time for shoes or toys.
Oversized changing pad. At 26″ x 17″ in size, it’s big enough for those squiggly little ones. Enough to cover up to baby’s head. No, we don’t like them to touch any part of the changing stations – as much as possible.
Reflective tape. We never walk in the dark or at night but I like that this safety feature will always be available if ever the need arises.
Waist, sternum strap and ergonomically designed padded shoulder straps. Even if the bag is full, it doesn’t feel like it because of this design. It even has a clip where you can clip toys, pacifier or your keys.
With how much stuff I can fit in it, I can always be sure that what we need will always be within my reach. This is my perfect diaper bag!
